Draft text of a bipartisan deal struck by Senators Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Patty Murray (D-WA) was released this week. The legislation generally would:

  • fund the ACA’s cost-sharing subsidies for the next two years
  • require promulgation of federal regulations to implement state “health care choice compacts” under section 1333 of the ACA to allow individual-market QHPs to be offered in more than one state
  • liberalize aspects of the ACA’s section 1332 state waiver program
